and age appropriate. >> i loved seeing them dancing and a little less reserved. >> i'm mara schiavocampo. stay tuned. "way too early" starts right now. there's one last thing i've got to do. i've got a date with me here. she inspires me every day. she makes me a better man and a better president. the fact that she is so devoted, ladies and gentlemen, my better half, and my dance partner, michelle obama.
2:31 am
♪ whether ♪ whether now ♪ whether fitimes are good or bad ♪ ♪ happy or sad >> last night the president and first lady capped off a day of inaugural celebrations with a dance to jennifer hudson singing "let's stay together." exactly how my night went except substitute the tuxedo for bell bottoms and '70s karaoke night. and i rocked the stage. it's "way too early" for this. good morning, i'm bill karins hosting your hangover edition of "way too early" live from the dubliner in washington, d.c. of course, we're joined by another absolutely amazingly fantastic crowd on this frigid morning here in d.c.
2:32 am
and this definitely is our hangover edition. patrick, that's a spicy bloody mary this morning. well, the inaugural balls, that stretches back to tradition going all the way back to the first president, continued last night. star-studded commander in chief ball. president obama and the first lady honor the country's brave men and women of the armed forces. the first lady wore a gown by jason wu, the same designer she wore to the 2009 inaugural ball. performances including alicia keys, brad paisley, marc anthony and jamie foxx who performed "i can't stop loving you" for vice president biden and his wife, jill. earlier the president tipped his hat to the military in attendance. >> this little party is just another way to say something we can never say enough. thank you. thank you for volunteering. thank you for stepping up. thank you for keeping us strong. thank you for always making us proud.
2:33 am
i have no greater honor than being your commander in chief. >> four years ago the president and first lady attended ten official inaugural balls. last night the inaugural committee held just two. the lowest number of balls for an inauguration since the eisenhower administration. the highlight of the day, however, took place on the steps of the capitol where the president offered his second-term challenge to the nation. joined from the principles of the founding fathers in pivotal moments from america's history. president obama delivered an impassioned call for equality and unity. >> we, the people, declare today that the most evident of truths, that all of us are created equal is the star that guides us still, just as it guided our forbearers through seneca and stonewall, just as it guided all those men and women, sung and unsung who left footprints along
2:34 am
this great mall to hear a preacher say that we cannot walk alone, to hear a king proclaim that our individual freedom is inextricably bound to the freedom of every sole honor. >> organizers estimate as many as 1 million people filled the national mall as president obama offered a preview of his second term. four years ago he was the first president to mention the word "muslim" during an inaugural address. the president made history again yesterday, delivering the first inaugural address to mention gay rights. >> our journey is not complete until our gay brothers and sisters are treated like anyone else under the law. for if we are truly created equal, then surely the love we commit to one another must be equal as well. >> as part of his agenda, the president also focused on immigration reform and spoke at length about climate control. as the commander in chief exited the stage and began walking into the capitol, cameras were rolling as he paused to savor the moment.
2:35 am
>> i want to take a look one more time. i'm not going to see this again. >> nice little moment there. joining us now, chief white house correspondent from "politico," mike allen. what's your overall take on the aftermath of yesterday? >> first off, where's my bloody? they offered me starbucks. >> you want a bloody mary? extra vodka in his, please. president obama saying what he's wanted to say for ten years. the president unleashed unabashed, unrestrained knowing that he has the high ground. republicans, very dispirited yesterday. they realize that any leverage they thought they had with this president going into the next couple weeks evaporated. they saw how strong he was, how aggressive he was and to be
2:36 am
pushing this agenda. and none of the rounding of the edges that we've seen ever since 1994 when we saw him on the stage talking about bipartisanship. there was none of that. instead another term that was the first in a presidential inaugural address is collective action. when have we heard a president talk about that? never. >> let's start with some of the reactions. obviously widely mixed throughout this country. many said it was the most progressive speech he's given. newt gingrich, on the other hand, said he didn't think it was very liberal at all and call it had classically american. the fix's chris cillizza said it basically boiled down to the president, deal with it. republican senator john thune said it lacked the necessary outreach to get things done. and there was a basic disagreement over how ambitious the speech was. the national review online editors wrote, "the rhetoric is still soaring and the country still stagnating." david ignatius rote, the only voice that really soared at midday was beyonce's.
2:37 am
mike, are some of those fair? >> david ignatius certainly is there, this is unquestionably the most ideologically ambitious speech since president reagan's first inaugural address 3 # years a 32 years ago. this is what he would do if he didn't have congress. i think coming up february 12th, when the president addresses congress, state of the union message, there i think we may see a more practical vision. for instance, taking center stage here was climate change. >> we have the sound bite from this. i mean, this surprised a lot of people. i follow this issue very closely. it wasn't even once brought up at any of the debates leading up -- not by a moderator or by the candidates, and then he chooses yesterday to bring it up. let's listen to the sound first and then we'll comment. >> we will respond to the threat of climate change, knowing that the failure to do so will betray our children and future generations.
2:38 am
some may still deny the overwhelming judgment of science, but none can avoid the devastating impact of raging fires and crippling drought and more powerful storms. the path towards sustainable energy sources will be long and sometimes difficult. but america cannot resist this transition. we must lead it. >> so the question is, is this just a preview of what's to come? maybe details in the state of the union, or is this just making up for lost time? >> i think it could be a little bit of both. but we saw in that clip a real shot the president taking at republicans. when he's talking there about climate deniers. another very unusual passage in this address. also may be up first. taking a shot at your previous opponent when we talk about social security, medicare, that's not being a nation of takers, throwing in that
2:39 am
message, i a real jab not only at mitt romney when he devoted convincingly but also paul ryan, house budget chairman, who he'll be dealing with and had made similar comments. what was interesting here was pushing climate change as the defining issue of the era. hard to see -- >> on the heels of sandy, the heels of last year's draught was one of the worst in our country's history going back to the dust bowl, you'd think there would be wind sailing in the right direction. >> that's right. he's putting something in the agenda that wasn't. we already had the pipeline to capitol hill so clogged. these three new fiscal cliffs coming up, gun control, energy infrastructure. he's putting this at the head of the line. immigration actually and even gun control got very little attention here. he mentioned newtown but only in passing. >> so do you think he held some stuff back for the state of the union? >> definitely. the state of the union will be more a blue print, a road map, but here he's talking for history. over the years this president has rightly been criticized for
2:40 am
not telling his own narrative, for not putting out a frame, for not connecting his own dots, telling his own story. here was the president doing it. he's writing the history book for himself. this is what he wants the history books to say about barack obama. >> mike allen, president it, as always. see you soon on "morning joe." >> bill, thanks for the drink. >> come on, patrick. today marks the 40th anniversary of the supreme court's ruling on roe v. wade, establishing a woman's constitutional right to have an abortion. new polling shows how unprecedented support is now. according to the nbc/"wall street journal" poll says 70% believe it should not be overturned, the highest since 1989. for the first time a majority of americans believe a abortion should be legal in all or most cases. officials who conducted the poll believe that the highly charged debate over contraception along with controversial comments the two senate candidates about rape and abortion helped shape these changing numbers. now to algeria. the late east that hostage
2:41 am
crisis. officials say three americans who worked for bp are among 37 workers killed in the attack as islamic militants stormed a natural gas complex in the sahara desert. seven americans escaped. algeria's prime minister says special forces were killed including a citizen who they believe coordinated the attack. three other militants were taken alive and being questioned. it included a team of explosive experts who had memorized the layout of the plant. investigators are looking into the possibility that they had inside help. the british ministry of defense says prince harry returning home after a 20-week deployment in afghanistan. the 28-year-old who's third in the line to the british throne serves as an apache helicopter pilot. during his tour, prince harry spoke about life in the military including whether or not he's ever killed taliban soldiers. >> take a life to save a life. that's what we sort of resolve around, i suppose.
2:42 am
you know, if the people -- if there's people trying to do bad stuff to our guys, then we'll take it along with the game, i suppose. >> britain's expected to withdraw half of its 9,000 troops by the end of the year. as always, let us know why you're awake or tell us what you were doing last night to celebrate the president's inauguration. shoot me an e-mail still ahead, the wife of a star player on mike barnicle's new england patriots is taking heat after she slams ray lewis on twitter. tom brady, sigh of relief, gisele staying quiet this time. that story is next in sports. and later, we pause to watch president joe biden do what he does best, hamming it up on the president's big day. we'll have that story and a check on weather. look at this great crowd from the dubliner when "way too early" comes right back. hey, our salads.
2:43 am
[ bop ] [ bop ] [ bop ] you can do that all you want, i don't like v8 juice. [ male announcer ] how about v8 v-fusion. a full serving of vegetables, a full serving of fruit. but what you taste is the fruit. so even you... could've had a v8.
2:44 am
in the middle of the night it can be frustrating. it's hard to turn off and go back to sleep. intermezzo is the first and only prescription sleep aid approved for use as needed in the middle of the night when you can't get back to sleep. it's an effective sleep medicine you don't take before bedtime. take it in bed only when you need it and have at least four hours left for sleep. do not take intermezzo if you have had an allergic reaction to drugs containing zolpidem, such as ambien. allergic reactions such as shortness of breath or swelling of your tongue or throat may occur and may be fatal. intermezzo should not be taken if you have taken another sleep medicine at bedtime or in the middle of the night or drank alcohol that day.
2:45 am
do not drive or operate machinery until at least 4 hours after taking intermezzo and you're fully awake. driving, eating, or engaging in other activities while not fully awake without remembering the event the next day have been reported. abnormal behaviors may include aggressiveness, agitation, hallucinations, or confusion. alcohol or taking other medicines that make you sleepy may increase these risks. in depressed patients, worsening of depression, including risk of suicide, may occur. intermezzo, like most sleep medicines, has some risk of dependency. common side effects are headache, nausea, and fatigue. so if you suffer from middle-of-the-night insomnia, ask your doctor about intermezzo and return to sleep again. ♪ i'd like to thank eating right, whole grain, multigrain cheerios! mom, are those my jeans? [ female announcer ] people who choose more whole grain
2:46 am
tend to weigh less than those who don't. multigrain cheerios well, besides politics, weather making news across the midwest and the great lakes and the ohio valley yesterday. just a horrible chain-reaction car accident. all down the interstate right outside of cincinnati. 76 cars, numerous injuries and one fatality. and there were accidents reported all over the great lakes and the midwest and the ohio valley because of black ice and the snow squalls. and all of that nasty weather, unfortunately, has now headed into new england and the mid-atlantic. who here would like to complain about how cold it is this morning? just a little bit. we can blame dylan dreyer because that's what we get to do this morning. dylan, the cold, the snow, cover it all for us. >> you love when there's somebody else to blame, huh? >> it's very easy that way. i'll take credit for the nice
2:47 am
weather yesterday. >> it turned out to be a gorgeous day in d.c. temperatures above average. today not so much, in the 20s. looking at the radar, there's not all that much going on, but a closer look shows you that the lake-effect snow machine is on. the lakes are not frozen because it has been so mild so far this winter. but the air that's crossing over the great lakes is so frigid and lake-effect snow will continue through the day today into tomorrow. and there's the chance we could end up with about 6 to 12 inches of snow, especially erie, pennsylvania, up into buffalo, likely another six inches of snow as it continues for days. we are looking for some really frigid temperatures. windchills down to 22 below right now in minneapolis. chicago it feels like ten below. and it's not going to warm up all that much this afternoon. highs will only be around one degree in minneapolis. and that cold air is going to stay in the northeast for a couple of days as well. bill? >> so in other words, i have to return, dylan, to bringing the warmer air and the good news. that's the bottom line in all
2:48 am
this. >> this way you can take credit for it and keep blaming somebody else. >> i'm good at that. thanks, dylan, have a great day. their last matchup of the season, great scheduling, nba. knicks up by one. carmelo anthony, the jumper that puts the knicks up. 29 points on the night for anthony. big shot here. joe johnson, nets down one. the jumper. it goes from the wing. the nets take a one-point lead. final seconds of the game, desperation, and that's your game. the nets win in new york. 88-85. that's a split of the seen series at 2-2. and now the nets are only one game back of the knicks in the standings. and barnicle's celtics are right there, not playing too badly. how about john walsh taking the team on his shoulders. there against portland last
2:49 am
night facing the trail blazers. under 15 seconds to go, matthews with the three to tie it at 95-95. maybe headed to overtime. what's jordan crawford have to say? here's the three from 31 feet. good! whoa! jordan crawford with the game winner. the wizards only have nine wins on the season and now have won 5 of their 7. might be worth it to actually go see a wizards game. on now to the nfl where the wife of the patriots player is causing controversy with a post-game critique of one of her husband's opponents. anna welker, wife of patriots receiver wes welker, took to facebook to vent some frustration after the pats' loss to the ravens on sunday. always smart. saying, quote, proud of my husband and the pats. by the way, if anyone is bored, please go to ray lewis' wikipedia page. 6 kids, 4 wives. acquitted for murder. paid a family off. yay. what a hall of fame player! a true role model!
2:50 am
eesh. anna welker has since apologized and deleted the post from facebook. no one saw that coming. of course, this kind of thing isn't unprecedented for the wife of a patriots player. let's flash back to gisele. thoughts on the patriots' receiving corps following husband tom brady's super bowl loss last season. >> my husband cannot [ bleep ] throw the ball and catch the ball at the same time. >> that was nice. coming up at the top of the hour on "morning joe," live, of course, from the dubliner, one term down, one to go. the "morning joe" crew weighs in on the big issues in store for the next four years in office and how washington can avoid the same kind of gridlock that long has gripped the government. when we come back here, we'll huddle around the water cooler where an animated joe biden can barely contain himself during yesterday's festivities. we'll show you the latest off-script moment from the vice president. when "way too early" comes right back. so i read the average couple loses 155 thousand dollars

of their 401(k)s to hidden fees. is that what you're looking for, like a hidden fee in your giant mom bag? maybe i have them... oh that's right. i don't because i rolled my account over to e-trade, where...whoa...okay... they don't have hidden fees... hey fern. the junk drawer? why would they... is that my gerbil? you said he moved to a tiny farm. that's it. i'm running away. no, no you can't come! [ male announcer ] e-trade -- less for us. more for you. did you see mr. clean disinfecting bath cleaner killing that bacteria yesterday, just flaunting it? and did you see the magic eraser clean up that crazy kitchen mess? it was like super dirty, super clean. how? wish i hadn't.

we, the people, still believe that every citizen deserves a basic measure of security and dignity.
2:54 am
we must make the hard choices to reduce the cost of health care and the size of our deficit. but we reject the belief that america must choose between caring for the generation that built this country and investing in the generation that will build its future. >> president obama covered a wide expanse of themes and topics in his second inaugural that was shorter than his first one. if you want to sound smart today, tell your friends that yesterday's inaugural address from president obama was exactly 2,114 words long, that's 281 words shorter than the one in 2009. william henry harrison gave the longest inaugural address at almost 8,500 words. washington's second inaugural was the shortest at a concise 135 words. enough with the real news. let's gather around the water cooler. where louis is standing barside. louis? the dangers, huh?
2:55 am
>> the dangers of being behind a bar this early in the morning. let me just do this real quick. >> this will be an improved segment now. >> well, yesterday was a big day for vice president biden. wouldn't you say? >> a huge day. >> well, it was indeed, and supreme court justice sonia sotomayor administered vice president's oath, and by the afternoon all bets were off. the vice president was full of energy, hamming it up at the inaugural parade. and honestly, do we expect anything less from the vp? he wore a big grin, giving a thumbs up and literally running up the street to greet as many as possible. he even stopped at nbc's al roker who was calling biden's name from the parade sidelines. take a look. >> mr. vice president! mr. vice president! mr. vice president! hey, how you doing? come on! come on! they won't let you? that's it! yeah! all right! yes!
2:56 am
yes! >> look at that. no shame. maybe one day, bill. maybe one day you will be able to get to that kind of stature, that level where you can go and call the vice president, beckon him over. >> willard scott had a first lady kiss him on the cheek, too. >> we'll see. you'll get there. "morning joe" for now, one day you'll be talking to the vice president. the frequently off-script biden didn't fail to deliver yesterday. during a toast at the inaugural reception, everyone thought the vice president was playing tribute to his boss, the commander in chief, but it turned out to be a surprise toast for none other than senator chuck schumer instead. take a look. >> folks, i raise my glass to a man who never, never, never operates out of fear, only operates out of confidence, and i'm toasting you, chuck. >> oh. and a guy -- a guy who i plan on
2:57 am
working with. you can't get rid of me, man. remember, i'm still part of the senate. god bless you, chuck. you've done a great job. lamar, you have as well. to chuck schumer. good to see you, pal. >> i'll toast to that, mr. chuck schumer. >> doesn't need a prompter. >> all right. now, all of his enthusiasm yesterday helped fuel speculation about a presidential run in 2016. just take a look at some of the recent headlines. i've got scarborough over here throwing stuff. i get no respect. i'm like rodney dangerfield. vice president biden invited key players -- >> i'm almost positive he was drinking apple juice. i just poured this jameson. do we really want to see what's going to happen? >> look at this. this is incredible. i can't even get through the script. what am i going to do? what am i going to do? >> come here. >> come on. this is just embarrassment. ow. still ahead on "way too early,"
